This website is a personal blog. There isn’t much here that is useful to many. I have posted a couple of things here that have gotten quite the response via comments and some attention at some rather large companies. Some of the attention has been good and some bad. Mostly good though so I’m proud of that.
SOPA / PIPA has the potential to kill this blog, it could be from a blog post I’ve done or a comment left by someone.
Obviously I’m completely against SOPA/PIPA.
Here we have piece of legislation that can erode freedom of speech, among other issues, comes straight from the big corporations and lobbyists such as the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) and the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) who bought OUR politicians off to support this with no regard for true public comment or sentiment.
This bill is to solely protect the interests of greedy corporations and has gotten where it is due to greedy politicians. Absolutely no democracy at work here.
But it would appear that the people have and are speaking out. Finally taking a stand and united front on a cause. This I would say is democracy in action and now only time will tell if the voice of the people can win out over the pocketbooks of the corporations.
I beg you to please don’t stop calling your Senators and Congressmen and voice your opposition to this bill. The calls take just a couple of minutes but means so much.
You can find your Senator or Congressman here:
If you live in Louisiana and have not already done so, please call the offices of Senators Landrieu (202-224-5824) and Vitter (202-224-4623) and (for the Lafayette area) Representative Boustany (202-225-2031) and tell them to vote NO on these bills!
